SM Energy (NYSE:SM) shares have crossed bullishly above their 10-day moving average of $52.97 on a volume of 759K shares. This may provide swing traders with an opportunity for a long position, as such a crossover often suggests higher prices in the near term.

Potential upside of 20.9% exists for SM Energy, based on a current level of $52.58 and analysts' average consensus price target of $63.59. SM Energy shares should first meet resistance at the 50-day moving average (MA) of $54.59 and find additional resistance at the 200-day MA of $54.59.

St. Mary Land & Exploration Company is an independent energy company that explores for and produces natural gas and crude oil. The Company's operations are focused in the Mid-Continent region, the Arkansas/Louisiana/Texas region, south Louisiana, the Williston Basin, and the Permian Basin.
